How Lara Can Help You Heal

A licensed Family and Marriage Therapist and EMDR therapist, Lara combines a variety of modalities, tailoring your treatment plan to your individual needs.

EMDR Therapy

Imagine a shifted perspective on how you view your traumatic experience. What if you could see it as empowering rather than shameful?

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) is now one of the most recommended and researched treatments of trauma. Lara is an EMDR therapist who can help unlock your brain’s information processing system that was frozen during the traumatic event.

Somatic Therapy: Trauma Resiliency Model (TRM)

Trauma shocks the nervous system, and the symptoms you experience are your body’s attempt to restore balance. TRM, inspired by the work of Dr. Peter Levine’s Somatic Experiencing®, can help you regain equilibrium in the body and mind.

TRM helps you develop skills to take care of yourself and discover your own resilience. Lara is a TRM specialist who can help you expand your sense of well-being in body, mind, and spirit.

Psychosensory Therapy: Havening Technique®

The Havening Techniques® is a method, which is designed to change the brain to de-traumatize the memory and remove its negative effects from both our psyche and body. As part of its protocol The Havening Techniques uses the sensory input of human touch as a therapeutic tool which we have identified as Havening Touch®. The process of the Havening Technique requires touch. The decision of who should provide the touch must be made jointly.

The Havening Techniques® are powerful tools that can be used to treat the consequences of encoded traumatic or stressful memories. Depending on the nature of the encoded trauma it can be done with guidance by a certified Havening Techniques practitioner or by oneself.
